    SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox from execmod access on the file /u

    This is coming up everytime I log on. SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox from execmod access on the file /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so. Any suguestions.
    I cannot Delete it or should I just keep it.

    Try

    Code:
    su
    semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so'
    restorecon -v '/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so'

    Those are commands entered in a terminal.

    The su is switch to root - though I would suggest a "su -" instead of just "su".

    semanage is the SELinux tool to manage labels. This defines the file context for the flash plugin and gets stored in the SELinux security database.

    restorecon is the SELinux command to restore valid context to files that may have been damaged. In this case, restore the flash plugin to what is in the database (just updated).

    Once this is done you shouldn't have to do it again.

    If you get the AVC error and click on details, you should be able to copy/paste those instructions right into the terminal after doing "su" or "su -". I've been getting similar errors (execmod) with Chrome lately, Firefox hasn't caused me any problems in a while.
